Car Accident FAQs

  • How Much Time Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim?

    According to Ala. Code §6-2-38, the statute of limitation to file a car accident claim in Alabama is two years. This means you have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim or you will most likely lose your legal right to do so.

    Though this may seem like a long time, remember that you first have to go through the entire insurance claim process. Insurance adjusters often draw out this phase, hoping to frustrate or exhaust you. Make sure legal stipulations don’t prevent you from suing for uncovered expenses: Hire an experienced car accident attorney today.

  • What Compensation Can I Recover?

    If you choose to go to court after a car accident, you may file suit directly against the at-fault driver’s insurance company or directly against the individual. A lawyer can help you decide what damages to seek. In Alabama, this may include expenses the insurer refused to reimburse, as well as tangible damages.

    You may request payment for:

    • Medical bills
    • Car repairs
    • Lost wages
    • Pain and suffering
    • Disfigurement
    • Loss of consortium

    Once in court, you’ll be arguing your case in front of a jury, so it’s important to have strong evidence. Your attorney can also help you prepare to confidently answer questions during cross-examination. They will present your case to help convince the jury of your needs.

  • Do I Need a Lawyer if I Don’t Plan to File a Lawsuit?

    In a word: Yes. Courtrooms aren’t the only venue where an experienced lawyer is an invaluable advocate. Insurance adjusters often try to take advantage of accident victims by purposely offering a low settlement to start, also known as “low-balling.”

    If you’ve never had to negotiate with an insurer before, they may try to pull one over on you. Even if you don’t think you need to file a lawsuit now, developments in your case may make it necessary later on, as it can be difficult to get the full compensation that you deserve.

    When you have a lawyer who is already familiar with your case and prepared to advocate for your interests, it simplifies the process and increases your odds of a fair outcome. Our experienced team at Cunningham Bounds knows how to deal with insurers in a no-nonsense way. We’ve done this hundreds of times before.

    There’s no need for you to take on the stress of a negotiation when you’re recovering from a scary experience like a car accident. Let our team do the hard work of reasoning with the insurance companies so you can focus on recovering and returning to your daily routine.

  • What Are the Most Common Car Accident Causes?

    In recent years, distracted driving has emerged as one of the most common reasons for car accidents across the country. It’s also still common for drivers to operate a vehicle while intoxicated – and this illegal behavior is responsible for ending thousands of lives every year.

    While it’s difficult to estimate exactly how many deaths and injuries are caused by driver negligence or defective vehicle parts, most public health experts agree that certain causes stand out above the rest.

    These careless actions are considered some of the top causes of motor vehicle accidents in the United States:

    • Texting, eating, and talking on the phone while driving
    • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
    • Aggressive road behavior or “road rage”
    • Ignoring traffic signs and signals
    • Failing to execute a merge in the proper way
    • Speeding
    • Tailgating
    • Poor vehicle maintenance
    • Failing to look both ways when backing out of a driveway or parking spot
    • Opening a door in traffic
